Saber Corp. said on Thursday it had concluded a global distribution agreement with Russia’s Aeroflot, which is hampering the country’s ability to sell seats.

The giant Texas-based airline software provides services for the distribution and booking of tickets for carriers around the world. Saber’s decision to terminate the distribution agreement means that Aeroflot’s flights will not appear on online travel agencies or other third-party sites. Aeroflot did not immediately comment.

It is the latest measure to isolate Russian airlines since the country invaded Ukraine last week.

Boeing, General Electric and other aerospace manufacturers have suspended parts distribution and service agreements with Russia, led by countries, the United States and European nations, as they impose sanctions against Russia’s invasion. The United States and Europe have cut off access to airspace to Russia.

“Saber is increasingly concerned about the evolution of the situation in Ukraine,” Saber CEO Sean Menke said in a statement. “We are taking a stand against this military conflict. We are fulfilling the sanctions imposed on Russia, and we will continue to do so.”

Saber has an agreement with Aeroflot, which allows the airline to book passengers on the airline’s SabreSonic platform.

“The company will continue to monitor the ongoing situation and assess whether additional actions are appropriate, taking into account legal considerations and countermeasures that may be put in place to respond,” Saber said.
